The paths around the waterfowl gardens are all paved and accessible with benches at regular intervals as resting points.
Boat tours run daily from 2 April to the end of September. The boat tours can accommodate 2 wheelchairs and carers are free to go on the tour. Tours start daily at 11am but we are able to book a boat tour in advance at 10.30am for a quieter session. Please email email@example.com for details.
The nature trail is fully paved. It is not a circular loop. Most of our hides have lower windows to allow for wheelchair users to view the wildlife and bird books to help with identification.
Morning explorers: relaxed times to visit – We would advise visiting Monday to Friday during term time when the centre is quieter. If you are visiting at the weekend we would recommend coming in between 9.30 and 11.30am as the centre becomes busier from 11am onwards.
If you have any specific questions about our accessibility then please feel free to call us on 01704 891220 and we can discuss it with you and help you plan your day.
